#Romnesia: Shecky Obama can’t face his own lousy record, mocks Romney instead; Conservatives hit back with #Obamnesia

Addressing a giddy audience of sycophants this afternoon at George Mason University, President Obama decided to follow in Richard Lewis’ illustrious footsteps. He’s evidently still flying high after his comedic stylings at last night’s Alfred Smith Dinner, so why not give his fans another glimpse of the ol’ funnybone?

That’s a pretty good reason why not. Unable and unwilling to confront his own shady past and abysmal record as president, ignoring his own history of making promises he can’t keep and reversing positions to score political points, Obama instead projected his own failings onto Mitt Romney. Pathetic.

Pot, meet kettle.

To carry out his deflection, Obama attempted a riff on Jeff Foxworthy’s “You might be a redneck…” routine:

Hilarity did not ensue:

Feeling inspired, his fans followed suit:

Liberals thought “Romnesia” was just about the most wonderful thing they’d ever seen:

Totes legit.

Eloquent.

The greatest!

The funniest!

Actually, that is the funniest thing to come out of Romnesia-palooza. Obama has had the lapdog media on his leash since before he won the presidency. This “real reporter” even took the time to confirm the spelling of his master’s new term:

Conservatives were not amused by the president’s foray into stand-up, and they sharply pointed out his hypocrisy:

Yep. President Obama is the king of shooting first and asking questions later.

And they returned fire with a hashtag of their own: #Obamnesia.

Bam.

Not for long.

    Would rather have a man with “Romnesia” in office than an “Obamanation” in office.

      You know after the humiliation of 0 at the Al Smith Dinner, his team was up all night and “Romnesia” was the best they could come up with.

    Conservatives can’t think of anything creative on their own. No wonder Santorum says the smart people will never be on your side.

    But I love it when Twitchy calls it a “strike back”, though. That’s always good for a laugh.

    • ChampionCapua

      Figures. Obama voters are OJ jurors. Give ’em a catch phrase and they’re happy to acquit the guilty. BTW, “We have always been at war with #Romnesia”

      Obviously new to twitter & the whole hashtag thing — or your like the POTUS & think you can just re-write history willy-nilly.

    • Fire and Adjust!

      Creative like respelling Scott to Skaught? Yep, you may have us there!

      But while we’re on the subject of creativity……….. lets look at who’s creativity has created more debt in four years than all previous presidents combined, lets look at who created more class warfare, racial animosity, and division, than has been seen in the last 50 years, lets look at who has created more doubt as to our loyalty with our international allies ever……………..creativity…….overvalued………results…..apparently not valued by you

      Interesting they refer to his “funnybone,” I hear he’s more into rusty trombones.

    • GaryTheBrave

      We’ve been calling this administration an Obamanation for a long time. It took nearly a year for Barry to come up with Romnesia. It sounds like a contraction of Romania and Rhodesia.

    • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

      Yeah, Conservatives can only think of how to take an idea or a need from the public and turn it into a company that makes money and employs people. Nothing creative about that at all.

  • Marcy Cook

    Is Obama like the character in the move The Curious Case of Benjamin Buttons? He is growing backwards…..and hence more childish as time goes by? This is a president? What an embarrassment.

    Funny that most of the #Romnesia tweets are lies from the left that have been proven wrong already…ie: Romney releasing only 2 years of tax statements. I found more than two online on my own. Seems like Obama and his leftist followers have a bad case of #Obamarrhea, spewing crap from their mouths.

      Started #Obamarrhea for those interested. The liberal talking points disease.

    • Guest#42874

      He’d better hope America’s voters have Romnesia and don’t remember Obama’s record the past four years…or they might suffer from Baracknaphobia in the voting booth.

    • Brian

      Wow, shocking. First, let me congratulate you on this new term you’ve coined. Apparently when Rightys/Tea Partiers coin a term..it’s oh so clever. But Romnesia? Ughh..how immature. Now umm…those tax returns that NO ONE ELSE has been able to get a hand on, where are they? Can we see em? :-)

      • Penmar

        Well, ya know, the saying goes, those that live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones, and we have video evidence of Obama’s version of Romnesia. It’s not a tax, it is a tax, it’s not a tax, but oh yeah it is a tax….And those tax returns are in the same place Obama’s transcripts are, I believe.

        • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

          Funny, Romney said exactly the same thing when he was questioned about his health care overhaul in Mass. It’s not a tax. It’s a penalty.

          • Penmar

            And your point is what exactly? That it is OK when Obama flip-flops and calls a tax a mandate, then a tax when it’s expedient and then a not a tax when he needs to twist the truth so he can get re-elected because a majority of the people didn’t want this bill in the first place? But it is not OK for Gov Romney to call it a penalty for a bill that the citizens of Mass wanted and approved of and still want and don’t care if it is called a penalty or a tax (In fact they call it a tax penalty)? The reason I mentioned it in the first place is because libs tend to pick and blame and absolutely love name calling except when it is directed back at them, and they don’t bother cleaning their own house before doing so. It is always ‘different’ when they do it or say it. My reply was for Brian who seemed to think it was completely fine when the derogative term was used in concert with Romney’s name, but not so much when one was used in concert with Obama’s name. And then he had the stupidity to bring up Romney’s tax returns, when the rest of us are still waiting for Obama’s college transcripts to be released. Clean your own house before you start trying to bring down someone else’s house. For every point you make and claim Romney is not fit to be President, we can counterpoint with an example in kind of why Obama is not fit to be President.

        • Brian

          Video evidence ehh? And Romney’s position as a “very conservative” President…where did that go? Candidates sometimes flip flop…Romney takes the cake…and bashes Americans behind closed doors to boot

          • Penmar

            That wouldn’t be anything like ‘ And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion’ would it, oh wait, no that was Obama. Like I said Brian, I can match you point for point.

    im waiting for the day when liberals realize there is a difference between the terms “ACCESS” and “STATE SPONSORED” in relation to birth control. listen, ALL women have access to birth control. go the pharmacy! or your doctor or planned parenthood or your school health center. EVERYONE HAS ACCESS! and it costs $9.00 a month. if you cant afford that, then go buy a $2 pack of condoms, or god forbid, KEEP YOUR PANTS ON! saying romney wants to “cut access” is a scare tactic to trick women into believing, “hey, this guys going to ban birth control”, which is so far from reality it is sickening. the point is that a government shouldnt be able to FORCE an employer to pay for it, and the government shouldnt have to pay for it either, especially in times of extreme economic hardship like right now. it doesnt mean you wont have access just like youve always had

  • Kevin

    This is hilarious! Conservatives with their heads up their you-know-whats taking a hilarious and original hashtag, #Romnesia, and trying to copy it with #Obamnesia. It doesn’t even sound right! Now if you’ll excuse me, I gotta get back to supporting a president who will be a leader before he’ll ever be a boss. #ForwardNotBack #ObamaBiden2012

    • http://www.facebook.com/matt.robinson.75 Matt Robinson

      a president IS the boss of the country in essence. he sure shouldnt just be somebody that sits at a desk, lies to us, and tries to make us feel better with a big smile. how about somebody thats had a real PAST, and REAL work experience…not just a community organizer who was ushered to a seat in the senate in which he was ABSENT or simply voted PRESENT on 98% of legislation, and then for some strange reason thought he was ready to be president. he is a do nothing president, just like he was a do-nothing senator. he could do the “community organizing” to get elected…BUT THEN WHAT?!?! he didnt know what to do next because that was never his job. it was just to stir the pot and get people to vote. i mean im 22 and ive had more experience in politics than he has. its ridiculous.

      • p8triotmom

        He even admitted in an interview that he tended to be lazy. No kidding!! Really???

          and they “make” him do his homework…”make” in john kerry voice to emit maximum pretentiousness. too bad the only homework they made him do was debate prep and not running the superpower hes in charge of….

      and forward to what? socialism? communism? you mean the ideology that we already fought wars, shed blood, and lost good americans to BEAT?! we are the winners, sir. why go back and adopt a losing strategie. what a slap in the face to every veteran. so YOU tell me whats backwards.

    What would you call a man who has changed his position on every issue since running for office last time? Not just on two. Every position on every major issue.

    • TexSizzle

      Barack Obama.

  • SideshowJon36

    Has Obama illustrated any of these changes in Romney’s positions? I think he’s been fairly consistent throughout.

  • p8triotmom

    I’m telling you, “O” secretly wants to be in the entertainment world – where literally all the world can be a stage for him to receive his adulation. He has lots of friends and connections – heck, he could have his own situation comedy “The Trials and Tribulations of XPOTUS.” His crowd thinks he’s intelligent because he uses big words, which they don’t even understand, you see. I’m telling you, it reminds me of Heaven’s Gate People, Jim Jones and David Koresh. Lemmings headed for the cliff and don’t realize it.

    Remember when Obama was against “Silly season”?

    If you repeat at the last debate that government doesn’t create jobs than turn around & say when I’m president I’ll create 15 million jobs you definitely have #Romnesia

      And if you say I’ll create millions of jobs in the green energy sector, fill their coffers with taxpayer money and then watch as they file bankruptcy and still insist green jobs will create millions of jobs you definitely have #Obmarrhea.

    Thanks for spreading the Romnesia meme guys. More you rant about it, the bigger it gets. Mitt earned this one big time, and it’s gonna sink him. You can’t fool all the people all the time, Mittens.

  • Al Sharptons Hair

    I listened to his “routine.” It sounds like a rip off of the whole, “You might be a red-neck.” Jeff Foxworthy should ask for royalties.

  • Brian

    The SAME conservatives who despised Mitt Romney for his record..or acting as if he’s the chosen one now. When months ago and in 2008 he was bashed for his flip flopping lol. This is cute…amazing what illogical Obama hatred can do huh Michelle?

    • Owen007

      So, you have a problem with flip-flopping… except when Obama does it and to a greater degree? And thank you for so completely destroyed your credibility by making excuses for one politician’s flip-flopping by complaining about another politician’s flip-flopping. “But he did it, too!” Yeah, yeah, yeah, why don’t you take that logic back to the preschool where it belongs. I’m sure you’ll be right at home there. And tell me that you voted for John Kerry. That would really tie this whole thing together.

      Boy, illogical Obama support can make a person do “amazing” things. It’d be cute if it wasn’t so pathetic.

        When you claim to be very conservative then try to come across as a moderate who supports contraception and claim that your health plan covers pre-existing conditions…in addition to other repeated flip flops saying anything to get elected then yea…one is worse. So tell me about the numerous times Obama has flip flopped then. Educate me please. And you probably voted for Bush right? How did all those dead Americans in Iraq and the collapsing housing market/economy work out for you? You can talk to me like an illogical supporter…but I can name details for why I dislike Mitt. What can you offer? Besides your Obamaphobia?

    Obamnesia: Saying that you’ve already been to 57 states and have one to go, or seeing our fallen heroes in the audience with you.

    Awww Barry made a funny. How clever. Who comes up with this crap? Joe Biden? I can’t believe this juvenile idiot is POTUS. They just throw anything out there and hope it sticks. Big Bird, Binders and now this nonsense. He must really think Americans are stupid because I remember EXACTLY how Hussain handled Benghazi and got Americans killed. No amount of name calling is going to change that. Hussain seriously needs some new comedy writers maybe Mitt wouldn’t of ripped him to shreds at the Al Smith dinner. Nah he still would of because Barrys a buffoon and there was unlimited material to choose from.
